Invista is debuting a PET resin with glasslike clarity for food, beverage and beauty product packaging.
Polyclear AE Crystal PET 3302 is intended mainly for thick-walled bottles of unconventional sizes and shapes. It has good moldability for thick-wall applications and high processability and efficiency. It provides surface sparkle and a clean appearance to attract consumers' attention, according to the Wichita, Kan., company.
The new resin also gives a high-gloss finish. Its strength makes more flexibility and tighter angles in packaging design possible. It can be processed in integrated, single-stage machines and in two-stage machinery. Its wide processing window also helps with design flexibility, Invista said.
